MLB Rumors

Carlos Corporan hits second homer
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Astros outfielder Carlos Corporan provided some power Tuesday against the Royals, though it wasn't enough in a 4-2 loss.

Corporan slugged a solo home run in the fifth inning as the Astros were fighting their way back, but the offense couldn't muster much more. He finished the game 1 for 3 with the home run, while also striking out once.

Corporan hasn't made much of an impact in his limited playing time, though two of his four hits through eight games have been home runs. He is hitting .190/.217/.476 in 21 at-bats.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Royals infield Omar Infante provided some rare pop in a 4-2 win over the Astros, as he recorded his first extra-base hit of the season.

Infante opened the game with a solo home run in the first inning, and then added another RBI in the third inning on a fielder's choice to give the Royals a lead. He finished the game 1 for 3 with two RBI and two runs scored, while walking once.

Infante has hit for almost no power this season, but he has found ways to be productive nonetheless. He is hitting .297/.381/.378 through his first 10 games with the Royals.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Blue Jays first baseman Adam Lind was forced to leave Tuesday's game against the Twins after three plate appearances due to a sore back, and told MLB.com after the game he does not expect to be back in the lineup Wednesday.

"I hope I feel better tomorrow, but that would be a miracle," he said.

Lind appears likely to miss some time moving forward, though that is not official at this point. He is hitting .324/.465/.500 so far this season, in 34 at-bats.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

White Sox reliever Daniel Webb picked up his first career win in just about the easiest possible fashion Tuesday, in a 2-1 win over the Red Sox.

Webb entered the game with runners on first and second in a tie game, but had record just one out to finish the inning. He induced a ground out to end the frame, and the White Sox went on to score the winning run in the bottom half of the inning, earning Webb the win.

Web has been a solid contributor out of the White Sox bullpen, posting a 2.35 ERA in 7 2/3 innings of work.

Burke Badenhop takes tough-luck loss
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Red Sox reliever Burke Badenhop took his second loss of the season Tuesday against the White Sox, though he didn't get much help from the defense.

Badenhop got the last out of the eighth inning, but ran into trouble in the ninth with the game tied at one. He allowed a leadoff walk to Alejandro De Aza, who was then caught stealing, before allowing a single and being pulled with two outs.

Badenhop took the loss as Chris Capuano allowed the White Sox to score the winning run, though that came on a throwing error by shortstop Xander Bogaerts. Badenhop has now allowed a run in four straight outings, leaving him with a 7.71 ERA in seven innings of work.

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Rangers got a big boost from an unexpected source Tuesday, as Kevin Kouzmanoff carried the team to a 5-0 win over the Mariners.

Kouzmanoff did much of the heavy lifting offensively while extending his season-opening hit streak to six games. He went 3 for 4 with three RBI, and each of his hits went for extra bases as he remains scorching hot to open the season.

Kouzmanoff is hitting .450/.522/.750 with five RBI and three runs scored in six games since being called up last week.
